Copycat Red Lobster Biscuits

If you have never eaten a Red Lobster Biscuit, you are missing out. I don’t eat at Red Lobster very often, but my very favorite thing there is definitely the cheddar biscuits! They bring them out in a little basket before your order arrives. Holey smokes they are good! My husband and I ate there a few weeks ago, and after eating more than my share of biscuits, I resolved that I must find a way to make them at home.copycat-red-lobster-biscuitsI tried a copycat recipe a few years ago, but it wasn’t exactly right. And all the other recipes I found called for biscuit mix. I never use that stuff anymore, so I decided to come up with my own. I tweaked my regular biscuit recipe and added the butter glaze from the old copycat version. Happily the results were stellar, and I didn’t even have to experiment three or four times! These are just as good as the Red Lobster Biscuits I had at the restaurant. Maybe even better!

Copycat Red Lobster Biscuits

2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/3 cup shortening
1 cup grated cheddar cheese (sharp is best)
1 cup milk

Garlic Butter Glaze:
3 Tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 tsp dried parsley
1/8 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder

Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, garlic powder, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Use a pastry cutter or fork to cut the shortening into the dry ingredients till shortening is about the size of peas. Stir in the cheddar cheese. Add the milk and stir lightly, till just barely combined. Don’t overmix or the biscuits will be tough. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup or ice cream scoop to place balls of dough on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 425° for 13-15 minutes or till golden brown. Combine all glaze ingredients and whisk well. Brush over hot biscuits.

  1. How many biscuits does this recipe wield?

  2. Oh wow! These look amazing! I can’t wait to give them a try! Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. My friends and I were just talking about Red Lobster biscuits last night. I haven’t had them in years, but I absolutely LOVE them. I’m going to have to make these for my family.
    I’d be thrilled if you’d link up at this week’s Off the Hook!

  4. These look so good! I love the Red Lobster biscuits, and I’ll have to give these a try sometime!! They look so good!

  5. Jared and I love these!!! I’d love to get a copycat recipe for their pina colada sauce too. We always request it to go with the biscuits and its like dessert even though garlic and pina colada sounds like a weird combo. Becca will make some for us tomorrow:)

    • I don’t think I’ve ever tried the pina colada sauce. I’ll have to request it next time. And man, when Rachel grows up, I hope she likes to cook as much as Becca does!
